MicroTextiles is a regenerative design project cultivated from waste currently destined for landfill. Once nutrient rich resources have been recovered, they are used for the cultivation of cellulose forming bacteria via a fermentation process. Within a month, the microorganisms secrete extracellular, nanofibrillar matrices which become textiles. This work is part of a larger research project aiming to develop ecologically relevant fibres applicable to the fashion and textile industry.
